Morning from a cloudy and foggy -- and cold -- Shiga Kogen.

Another report this morning as I try to keep up with the resort operations information that seems to be changing every day! Really, sometimes it seems that the ski resorts themselves are confused.

We are now down to two ski resorts remaining (just about) open - Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama/Shibutoge. It's all pretty narrow and limited but it seems like a few courses at Yokoteyama are open again as well as Shibutoge runs.

Interestingly, Shibutoge have been reporting a temperature of -2C! And there has been some light snow falling in some higher areas early morning.

Samui!

It should be a bit warmer over the weekend.

Whatever happens tomorrow and Sunday - no doubt there's a good chance of more changes - Sunday is definitely the last possible day of the season here in Shiga Kogen.
